Hello Everyone

Let us have fun and play with our drivers. The idea of the game is that the drivers will be taken to a place where they will be asked to cross an area which is relatively small. There will be no need to make a convoy or anything similar. It is very simple game with simple rules. You have to cross few GPS points and arrive to the target and we will measure the time. At your drive no assistance will be given, so you may think about your self-recovery tools. The winner will get a classical bottle of "Halal" Champagne and huge ovations from the audience.

At some points, there will be positioned Observers to mark all the cars, who achieve to drive, to particular point. Challenger and Observer must shake hands with each other, where Challenger stretches his hand as first. We ask now potential Observers to register for this event.

There are not allowed any passengers in Challenger's car, neither, wife, kids nor girlfriend.
The role of Time Takers will be to send the drivers on the track (in 3 minutes intervals) and record the time for every Challenger at starting and finishing point.
There will be also audience built mainly from Newbies, who will watch you carefully, your driving style and eventual self-recovery. Fortunately for the Challengers, the audience,time takers and observers will not be allowed to enter the territory by their cars, not to endanger the progress, only by the foot at designated area.
Usual mandatory tools and recovery gear applies. At the Gathering Point, Marshals will check all the cars for compliance with the requirements. All those, who will not have the required equipment, may join us the next year similar event.

Challengers, Observers and Time Takers are recommended to join BBQ camp after then event to chill out and chit chat with audience.

Available slots :

Challengers ( 20 ) : - for 10+ newbies ( 8+ may register after Marshals approval )

Observers (10) :- for Newbies and above levels

Time takers ( 6 ) :- for Newbies and above levels

Audience :- open for all levels

For registration , please follow thishttps://almost4x4.com/trip_system/trip2.php?id=860

Dear members

If you played the game before then you should give the chance to the new 10+.

If you are less than 10 , you should ask the organizer's permission first!!!

The organizer is going to remove the members who don't fit in the category without prior notification.

Thanks for your cooperation

Unfortunately, I'm not eligible to join as a Challenger so I've signed up to an Observer, I think it is a very good opportunity for us to learn nevertheless!

I have a few questions though. I understand that we are not allowed to enter the area with our own cars so how do we get to our point of duty? I'm assuming we will be dropped off by the crew and not given the challenge to walk to the middle of the desert? O_O

We will be positioned somewhere in the desert for quite a long time without our cars. So I'm naturally curious whether there will be some sort of cover & seating for us there, like Almost4x4 parasols? Not a concern if nothing will be available, just asking so that we can make our own arrangements, I like to be prepared! grin

Last but not least, is it OK for us to come with a non-4x4 regular vehicle (and park somewhere safe nearby) since we won't get an opportunity to drive at any point as Observers? Or could there perhaps be a small surprise "thank you" drive for us unlucky folks before the event hope my fake smile works again

Come with a 4x4 so you can reach the area.
It will be parked close to the sitting point.
Carry your water and snacks to the sitting point.
Dont forget to bring a cover/umbrella or similar, since the sun can be strong.
There will be other observers, family, etc... is very nice event!

Enjoy it!!
